Unfortunately… sadly… almost exactly what you’ve described. That said, there are exceptions. If I had to guess I’d say a plurality of the time an acquisition goes very well and nobody ever hears about any turmoil so it gets forgotten. But… my inbox is filling up with people who have been through what I described in the post.

Hey, thanks for the feedback and generally reading my stuff!
